Work in NYC or Virtually
We are recruiting outstanding undergraduate and graduate students as interns for late Summer 2012 and the 2012-2013 school year (either or both!) to collaborate on the boldest nonprofit initiative we know.
Here is the problem we are tackling: K-12 schools in this country do not have enough resources to let children explore their potential and excel. Books, computers, art supplies, musical instruments, science equipment, sports equipment, and even paper for computers and printers are all in desperately short supply.
About Us: The people behind ClassWish.org include such prominent education and business leaders as Adam Hirsch, former COO, Mashable; Laurie Coots, CMO, TBWA; Scott Cutler, EVP, New York Stock Exchange; Betsy Morgan, former CEO, Huffington Post; Nancy Pelz-Paget, Director, Education and Society Program, Aspen Institute; Sharon Robinson, CEO, American Association of Colleges of Teacher Education. Forbes Magazine liked our approach so much that they donated a full page to help raise awareness. Yo-Yo Ma, Tony Hawk and Dwight Howard are among the celebrities who have offered to help promote ClassWish.org. Most importantly, current and former interns will offer a great review of ClassWish.org.
You will take leadership on projects and work with other highly motivated interns, established professionals, and directly with our co-founder.
What do we offer? You will enhance your resume with a solid record of professional achievement and community service, and you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you have helped children get the tools they need to perform at their best.
Where are you located?
We are in Manhattan, conveniently located right across from Madison Square Garden. There are four express subway stops within one block. We will also hire interns to work remotely from other cities.
Is this a paid internship?
We can offer a great experience, a great addition to your résumé, academic credit (if your school allows), stunning recommendations, and a chance to make a difference, but we are a start-up nonprofit, so can only offer unpaid internship and volunteer positions.
When will you select the interns?
We’re agile. When we see a great candidate, we extend an invitation immediately. We won’t keep you waiting for a decision.
What dates will the internship run?
We are hiring for the spring semester, for the summer, and beyond. Tell us what you are looking for.
What are the hours?
We welcome full-time and part-time interns. Let us know what works for you.
Sounds exciting! How can I apply?
Please send an impressive cover letter and a resume to interns@ClassWish.org.
ResponsibilitiesWhat skills and experience are we looking for?
We seek a wide range of skills: graphic designers, videographers, writers, researchers, creative thinkers, analytical sorts, community organizers, social media stars, people with great communication skills, MBA students, and more.
The work: Teachers and students are already getting supplies from ClassWish.org. Now, we need to raise greater awareness and encourage more participation so we can help more kids. Interns will work in small teams focused on such things as:

RequirementsWhat will we need to bring?
